Pros: Quality Prints, iPhone quick photo prints, wireless, all in one .
Summary: I checked on the "Which" report for a printer and this one came out very well. Easy to set up wirelessly and works extremely well. I wanted to stick with Canon quality and it lived up to my previous experience of Canon equipment.Excellent.
Summary: Disappointed that my HP wireless all-in-one has malfunctioned after only 18 months of light use (it keeps telling me to add paper) I searched for an alternative wireless all-in-one, and latched on to this one from Canon as it was the right price and, importantly, used individual ink tanks that should lead to better economy.
Summary: When I decided that I needed to buy a new printer I wasn't hopeful of finding a good printer for less than £80. But I stumbled across this printer and was amazed just how many 5* reviews it had garnered from other reviewers. I own 3 Canon DSLRs that have all been excellent so I figured a Canon printer should also be good, and hey, all those 5* reviews couldn't be wrong, could they?
Excerpt: "...that I'd go down the Canon route as they seemed to offer the best of both worlds. Generally, they seemed well built and offered separate ink tanks for each colour. My choice was the Canon MG5250 from Amazon. I had a budget of around £100, and this came in just under that at £98.97 delivered. **In the Box/Setup** The Printer is very well packaged. Encased in the usual polystyrene inserts, it also had a solid tube of re-enforced cardboard in each ...
Pros: Well built, Wireless 'b, g and n' compatible, Excellent quality prints, Quick, Cheap compatibl ink
Cons: Occasionally slightly slow on startup, Doesn't make the tea !
Summary: I am delighted with this all in one printer I have always had Epson printers before but I have had such trouble printing onto card as I am a card maker. I found this canon very easy to install and to use. It takes all my card stock,parchment and acetate I have used the duplex printing which is very good if you want to print of tutorials etc as it saves on paper.Also have used the print straight to disc which I have never done before and found it very straight forward.
Summary: Very smart, very clever, easy to install especially for someone non technical like me. It does everything I want it to. Liked the way it printed on both sides to save paper and the set up to perform this task was quite self explanatory using the small screen which prompted each move. Also like the integral paper store, giving two places to feed from, so that in order to print envelopes you don't have to remove all the paper and reset the feeder.
Summary: I've just successfully set up this printer - no problem at all, but I'm not using Wi-fi. Have printed both documents and speciality papers and am highly delighted with the result. I've been hunting for a machine that will print on 300gsm card, and this is it! The machine is very quiet in use with great print quality. I'm looking forward to exploring all of its capabilities, but was so pleased with it I felt duty bound to say so!
Summary: Bought this to replace an ageing and unreliable Lexmark. Using the very clear step-by-step instructions, setup was quick and easy: took about 40 minutes to setup and install on 2 Macs, with wi-fi via a BT HomeHub. The printer found the wi-fi network almost immediately. Print quality is very good & the copy & scan functions are very easy to use & work well. Perhaps what a printer looks like does not matter that much, but is a classy looking bit of kit!
